I grew up in Massachusetts, but I escaped to Florida as soon as possible.
Since I did a lot of hard physical labor for my work, I adapted well to the change of environment.
So today, we got our first “chilly” day here in this beautiful beach town I already know I’m going to see people wearing hooded sweat shirts, jackets, etc.. I almost have to laugh, because it’s not really cold out.
The bad part is that they won’t adjust to the cooler temperatures because they don’t give their bodies the chance to naturally. Why should your body adapt when you are smothering it with warm clothes? It doesn’t have to.
In like manner, many people who move here from up north never adjust to the heat. They are always staying in air conditioned environments. Their bodies are being kept from adapting to the heat.
How healthy do you think it is to over react to slight temperature changes like this?
In my opinion, it’s not healthy at all. It’s just another example of weakness.
People just refuse to toughen up unless they are forced to. Why not just choose each day to toughen up a little more voluntarily?
You will not regret it!
